    The original AOE is much better than the released MMO imo but its still pretty good and worth a shot if anyone wants some free achievements lol.

    Ah sweet. I loved RA!

    No problem mate. I've only started upgrading this at the moment, so hopefully it will get a bit easier as I go. Atleast I kind of know the controls now... :rolleyes: lol.

    Lovefilm have sent me neverdead :)

    Had 15mins on dead island last night and don't no if i'll play it or not :rolleyes: i no 15mins tells me nothing but have read that the game is melee base.
    Jason seeing you have played it,is there a mixture of shooting/melee?

    Might give the game some more time before monday or it goes back to lovefilm.

    tbh mike, more or less i used melee, u can customise weapons like electric or fire based weapons for example, guns are used at certain times but overall i used melee, it can be a bit tedious but again it's a marmite game imo.

    i would at least look at a guide and see what u could get from the game and at least do the story once.

    but if u think it's not for u then fair enough some people haven't been grabbed by it some loved it, i was about 50/50 really, it got sometimes boring but i just liked how it looked and it seemed more like an adventure game to me than a survival game.

    guide.....
    Achievement Guide and Road Map - Xbox360Achievements.org



    @sent brutal legend back today, got 700 from it, this should have been an action/adventure game not a silly RTS game, i would have enjoyed it more then.


    got the darkness 2 this morning from lovefilm.

    @pixel, u can sod that about catherine 10/10 difficulty and about 100+ hours to complete it if u are lucky, plus i didn't like the look of the game anyway.

    :laugh:

    Think i might give dead island a miss to be honest just don't think i'll like it.
    I was hoping for lovefilm to send me the darkness 2 as i enjoyed the first one but im happy to be playing a new game tomorrow which will be neverdead plus i done a trade on here and got myself a mint copy of dead space 2 which arrived today.

    So happy gaming for now :D

    Are TA trying to make me pay to subscribe by making the page render like :censored: due to adverts.

    Absolutely no useful content is visible without scrolling.

    the online ones can be done with 2 people so once u get used to the controls we can do them if u want to sort out a time.

    Poor render/layout on My Games page

    TA just made a sarcastic remark.
    I'm noticing the a link with this issue and that the AVF redesign that assumes you have a 1024x768 monitor which I was vocal about last year.

    Blocking the ads wouldn't/doesn't make a difference, the page renders the same way. I'm assuming it is some badly floating/resizing divs that take up most of 1280x800 screen.

    Really don't no what to make of neverdead its a strange one.I'm not finding the game fun to play and the controls don't help.
    I will just have to try and get as much as possible from the game before i send it back.

    Dead island going back monday so hopefully they will send me the darkness II.

    added.

    yeah it was shocking, the worst is that one of the achievements i think is to do all the challenges both normal and hardcore.

    just let me know when u want to carry on with it.
